Summer flowers and plants have arrived at Pro Touch Landscapes, along with potting soil, mulch and new planters.
From Lantana, Begonia, Petunias, Impatiens and Verbena we have an array of flowers for your landscape or container gardens.
We also have vegetables and herbs including peppers, tomatoes, squash, cucumber and okra, among others, for your home garden.
Before planting your vegetable garden you will want to consider placement of the garden in your landscape.
Keep in mind that most vegetables need full sunlight for growth and development. Plant vegetables like broccoli, collards and spinach in areas that are partial shade. Don’t plant any vegetable in complete shade. Large hedges, hedgerows and trees not only create too much shade, but they also will compete with the garden for moisture and nutrients.
Locate the garden near your house so you can keep a watch on it daily. Being close to your garden will help you notice insects, disease and weed problems.
When looking for a garden site, keep in mind that the exact soil type is less important than factors such as high fertility, good drainage, good moisture-holding capacity and deep topsoil.
Locate your summer garden as close to a good water supply as possible.
